    The Video Games Thread II - The Resurrection

    I promised I'd kick this off again.

    So here I go.

    Order F1 today, ready for its release this Friday. Looks good and hopefully F1 will finally have a decent game.

    I remember the first official F1 game for the PS1 - Damon Hill and David Coulthard in the Williams. It was brilliant. For the time.

    Check out the Bioshock Infinte gameplay video and interview on Xbox Live Dashboard- it looks like it could be an all time classic game. Only have to wait until 2012 to get it...

    Edit: I see from elsewhere that you've taken my advice Langdale! But I'm not sure what you mean by saying I'm biased about the Bioshock universe...

    I know I've mentioned it before on the original Games thread, but RUSE is an exceptionally good strategy game, one of the best I've ever played. Brilliant, brilliant fun, plenty of different modes, including some 'What if?' scenarios, such as defending London from a German invasion, and even on the Beginner difficulty some of the later missions in the campaign are extremely tough. One where you have to defend Bastogne from a massive German assault took me several attempts, and a few different variations of setting up my defences properly to figure out the best strategy. And the 'Ruse' system is brilliant- build a decoy army to draw out the enemy, camouflage your bases so they can't be found, attack using radio silence so that the enemy doesn't know where you are, all add a little something different to the strategy game. Would definitely put up there for one of my favourite games of the year, especially if you like a little something to tax the brain cells.

    Geoff Crammond's Grand Prix 2 was awesome. Going back about 14 years there.

    I don't remember that at all. I think there was some F1 game on the Mega Drive! and if you hit anything off the track, your front wheels flew off. Never really been impressed by F1 games but there seems to have been a lot of time and effort put into this game.

    Hopefully it a good 'un and doesn't give me the same level of disappointment as the darts game on the Wii. What a pile of wankarama that was

    Nice Vettelesque start there. Also love how all the cars behind are seemingly flying through the clear blue skies

    It was a really good system - you could turn the graphics levels on or off for virtually anything, depending on how quick your PC was. That meant that pretty much anything from a 486 upwards could run the game at high speed, just by turning off detail to your own preference. That guy's obviously turned off the reflections in the mirrors.

    I had everything turned on as my PC was brand new back in the heady days of 1997.

    Ahh Grand Prix 2...where you can overtake 15 cars into the first corner with enough practice. Loved the game, even had a steering wheel and pedals plugged into my PC to play it!

    Did anyone play Grand Prix Manager 2?

    As I mentioned on the previous thread Lego Harry Potter is bloody superb. My only issue is keeping Squeeze off it long enough to get a go myself!
    Don't wear no leather to fit in
    Don't wear no spikes to be cool
    Don't need no woman beside him
    Just make it fast loud and rude

    Had a go on the demo and it's ace.

    Can't wait for it to go down in price so I can buy it and add it to the 1000 G club!

    And yes Jinky - bring on a week on Friday - can't wait!!

    My main gripe with it is that it is very hard to know which spells you have on the spell wheel unless you recognise the logos. Having the spell names appear would be really helpful. Apart from that it is really great stuff.

    Your main gripe is that a 6 year old and your missus are better at it than you!!

    I'm going to have to get a copy when the new one comes out. Been a long time since I had a game.

    I miss having a "mess" around game when bored as well. Bankrupting Albion and putting the worlds best in Stafford Rangers squad is highly pleasing for a while.

    When I get my iPhone (early December) I'm tempted to get the FM app as I hear it's pretty decent. Does anyone here have it?

    It's mainly for something to do on the commute to Brum every day.

    You'll be too busy reading the news/facebook/Sky Sports and playing on Angry Birds to do that

    I hate FM10. Just couldn't get into it so still playing my FM09 game with Shrewsbury, although must be months since I loaded it up. I have my copy of FM10 available should anyone wish to purchase it!
